Mau P returns to Insomniac Records with self-sung single, ‘On Again’

Maurits Jan Westveen, perhaps more commonly known as industry heavyweight Mau P, has officially returned to Insomniac Records with a hooky new club staple, “On Again.” Since making his Insomniac debut with “Gimme That Bounce” in early 2023, Mau P has linked his steadily growing catalog to some of dance music’s most cutting edge imprints. With an official music video due on May 2nd, “On Again” has arrived on the calloused heels of “BEATS FOR THE UNDERGROUND,” Westveen’s massively anticipated track ID that landed on Repopulate Mars in January. If there’s one thing that separates “On Again” from Mau P’s previous releases, it’s that it features vocals from none other than the producer himself.

On April 21st, during Coachella Weekend 2, Mau P played out the new record during a back-to-back set with Diplo. Soon after, the Dutch frontrunner teased a video clip featuring an unforeseen collaborator. “I just didn’t have anyone else,” Mau P explains in the behind-the-scenes studio footage. It quickly becomes clear Westveen is responding to internationally acclaimed record producer Mike Dean, who had asked about the vocal performance heard in the brief recording.

“On Again” is a simple yet tasteful contribution to dance music amidst the developing festival season. Stream the Mike Dean-assisted record, doubling as Mau P’s vocal debut, below.
